Welcome to the land of used vehicles right now.. my ford taurus that i bought last year is worht $800 more Blue book than when i bought it. But 10K sounds a little high, is that dealer only?? i would hit CL, and look as well, since here in MN a solid one like what you are speaking of is in the $6-$8k range. but yep nothing cheap about them anymore.
Used truck prices in the Carolinas are through the roof!!! Even high mileage trucks are bringing good $$ because the new trucks are so high priced. Buying a new truck is like buying a Cadillac 8 years ago!!!
Here's a couple I found locally:
6 years old and still not that expensive for what you get:
10K is an easy budget to be at and still maybe spend a little coinage and get a 1 way ticket and drive the beast home if it's in decent enough shape.
